do you know when it was painted?
Mike Thompson painted it for Jerry, I guess around 1994. Had another blow over about 10 years ago.

Is this at Dave’s for paint now?

No seat mods needed?
Update above Jim. Yes now at Dave’s. Seats are okay, just need a bit of light and sympathetic restoration. Next job on the list when funds recover. !

A significant factor in this will be what other services manage to do. For those who travel to events, access to meals, hotels and a small beer need to be considered.
